Reading a series of obituaries from a single cemetery, as they are presented here, is like reading the multi-generational history of a community. These people were the local populace at a particular time. The people buried here knew each other, were neighbors and relatives. All people are listed in alphabetic order by surname at BIRTH. Women identified by a married alias only and for whom a birth surname can not be identified, are listed on the last page for the cemetery's obituaries.

Wellsboro Agitator - JUN 12,1883
THE LATE ROSWELL ACKLEY, OF CLYMER TOWNSHIP
To the Editor of the Agitator
Clymer, June 4, 1883- Mr Roswell Ackley died of pneumonia, at his residence in Clymer Township, on Thursday, May 31, 1883, in the seventy-ninth year of his age. Mr. Ackley was born in Tompkins county, N Y March 14, 1805. He came to this State about thirty-five years ago, and settled on the farm where he has ever since resided. His father died when he was eight years old and his mother when he was thirteen. Left an orphan, this early in life, without money and obliged to depend upon himself, he formed those habits of self reliance and industry which characterized his after life. He was just such a man as this country most needs- active, energetic, self reliant and of uncompromising integrity. Perhaps no man in this community has done more to reclaim this country from the wilderness and bring it to its present prosperous condition than Roswell Ackley. The fruits of his labor are to be seen on every side in the beautiful and fertile fields and numerous buildings which dot the landscape in every direction, enduring monuments of his industry and skill. He has left his “footprints in the sands of time.” When the demon of war broke loose he stood firm and loyal to the old flag. Too old to go to the front himself, he freely gave his six stalwart sons for the preservation of the Union, all of whom he was permitted to see return to their homes. Such was the confidence of the boys of his acquaintance at the front in his integrity that they made him custodian of their funds. Their confidence was never betrayed; and although the services he rendered the soldiers were many and sometimes arduous he would never accept a penny from them in return. He united with the M E Church at the age of twenty-three, and was an honored member at the time of his death. He leaves an aged wife and seven children and a large circle of friends to mourn his loss. Having been often called upon to settle the estates of his deceased neighbors, there are those to whom he has been guardian and a father who will always remember him with love and regret. Although everything that money and skill could devise was done and after eight days of sickness he yielded up his spirit to his Father and his God. In the little church near his home, which his own hands helped to rear and which had been his special care, the funeral services were held, Rev. Mr Howland preaching from Job xiv., 14. Many were unable to gain admission to the house, which was nearly filled with mourning friends. By his own request his favorite hymn was sung: “there is a gate that stands ajar”
